Here are a set of photos made by a Russian photographer who went in with the Russian forces to Ossetia. A view from the other side as it were. The editor appears to have not done much editing and some of the images are a bit graphic, however these photos add another dimension to the images coming out so far. The intro to the site is in English, but comments in Russian.
“We present a set of photographs from the war in South Osetia made by Arkady Babchenko, one of the editors of Russian war veterans Almanac â€Art of Warâ€ (http://www.navoine.ru/).
